You can’t please everyone,
So why bother trying
When you know you’re not
Used to this lying
Your girlfriend’s wrong
But you’re no Mr Right
And you’re the only one
Left in this fight

Chorus:
Thinking, what could have been
In all these things that I’ve seen
Caught up in a catch 22
Searching for something new

The texting on my phone
When you’re alone
I know’s the only way
To keep you at bay
And even though I’m bored
Of the chatting and pretending
It seems that anyway,
I’ll save your lonely day

What you want to be
Through all these things we’ve seen
Caught in a catch 22
Searching for something new
Different to your disillusioned view
You want it now but I can see what’s true
You standing outside number 31
Your willing but I’ve tried and now I’m done

Guitar solo

Now the calls and mail
Seems to never stop
And I’d love to prevail
But I’m really just not
What you think I am
Can’t find the words to say
Please leave me alone
‘cos now you’re just a fan

Thinking, what could have been
In all these things that I’ve seen
Caught up in a catch 22
Searching for something new
What you want to be
Through all these things we’ve seen
Caught in a catch 22
Searching for something new
Different to your disillusioned view
You want it now but I can see what’s true
You standing outside number 31
You’re willing but I’ve tried and now I’m done
